Is there scientific evidence for chakras?

Margaret M Moga of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapol has been conducting research and analysing research on chakras and energy healing and various other interesting subjects, ‘ In this narrative review, anatomical and physiological evidence in support of chakras as scientifically detectable structures is examined. Although there have been few scientific studies of the chakras, evidence suggests that chakras may emit electromagnetic radiation and be associated with underlying nerve plexuses.’

In this review she identifies relevant research on chakras and also concludes that

‘The biofield, of which chakras are part, is based on

bioelectromagnetics and biophysical fields that play a regulatory role in cellular structure

and function (Movaffaghi and Mohammad, 2009)’, which means that chakras have a biological and chemical method and function and if this is true are part of our human biology.

Many people have experiences when they work on their chakras or meditate on them such as seeing colours or feeling energy or heat. And when she has finished the research she is doing on this topic, I will be looking forward to reading it. So, if you are interested in reading more about the research she has done as I am, then click on to her website, and I will be posting about her research on my blog as well,

As I have a degree in Psychology with health and nutrition, as part of my studes at university I undertook research in my degree subjects. Prior to that I studied sociology at A level and degree level as well and read much research on social science issues. And so I am interested in reading research articles, post graduate thesis and keeping up to date with new research in subjects I am passionate about.

Looking forward to continuing this and sharing some of what I find with you.

Searching for Unicorns

I used to go to school with a lass who always said she was searching for unicorns. I think now that it is good to always try to find unicorns, dreams and things to make you smile, things to make you laugh and ways to find magic in your life and magic even in the bad times as well as the good. So I have not forgotten the girl who told me that she was looking for unicorns and whatever was happening that week at high school, she made me smile when she talked about this.

So try to find your unicorns, your wishes and dreams, things to make you smile, laugh and forget the difficulties that may be ensuing. And if you are finding it hard on your own to do this, then reach out to someone to others, to friends, or professionals like counsellors, reiki practitioners, and there is a lot of things that are helpful to lift someone up, like starting to paint, going to art classes, or simply buying some paper and paints and putting colour down onto the paper can be uplifting, or writing a journal and making lists of what you would like to do and start going through the list and if you can’t do exactly what you have on the list, then to do a similar thing to it. Going for walks and being out in nature is good for you too. Find things to enjoy every week and people to have a bit of a chat to, sounds simple but can work wonders.

Ten minutes visualisation for relaxation and stress reduction and ten mins Reiki together

Sit down comfortably. Close your eyes, I want you to imagine that you are walking along a beach, this could be a beach you know, or simply a stretch of sand, the sky above is a blue and bright, a spring day. To your right is the sea, it has small waves, the sea is clear glitters in the sunshine. Walk along the beach, the sand feels warm and soft under your feet, with every step, you feel more comfortable, and calmer. With every step, you can hear the noise of the waves, which is soothing, and feel a gentle breeze on your face. Walk along the beach, you can hear seagulls over head, and you can smell the sea air, and the sea weed along the shoreline. Continue walking along the beach, with each step, you are leaving the past behind you, with each step, you are releasing yourself from your worries, with each step you feel more relaxed. Continue walking along the beach, with each step you feel more confident, and stronger. As you do this, breathe normally, and listen to your breath. Walking along the beach, the sun shines on your face, and the warmth is soothing. Walking along the beach, you can hear the waves softly crashing to your right, over and over and over. Walking along the beach, there is only this moment of calm and comfort right now where everything is fine. After ten minutes, open your eyes, take time to ‘wake up’, especially if you need to drive anywhere, drink some water, enjoy the rest of the day.

Ten minutes reiki together:
Sit comfortably on a chair or settee, close your eyes, and place your hands, palms up on your knees, think of a golden light shining down on your, going down to your crown chakra. This light is going to go down around you, down through your third eye chakra, down through your throat chakr, down to your heart chakra, to your solar plexus chakra, to your sacral chakra, and to your root chakra. As this happens, they will open, and work efficiently for you. You will feel relaxed and calm. The reiki will sooth and help you release fears, worries, and anxieties. As you are enjoying this relaxation, breathe normally, listen to your breath, hear the sounds outside, and in your environment. Everything is fine in this moment, peace, kindness, happiness, joy, sharing, helping others, relax in this moment. After ten minutes, open your eyes, take time to ‘wake up’, especially if you need to drive anywhere, drink some water, enjoy the rest of the day.

Reiki via distant connection

Reiki is a very versatile energy and can be used/given/channelled/shared in many different ways. You do not need to be in the same room near to a practitioner to receive Reiki. Reiki can be ‘sent’ to someone from any distance. Reiki energy is everywhere including inside everyone and around us all and in the universe. So, when someone is channelling Reiki they ‘send’ it to the person and also there is Reiki energy around that person and that energy also goes to them, as well as this there is oneness, this means that we are all one and not separate, which comes from Bhuddism, This is quite difficult in some ways to grasp, because we are all unique individuals, and separate entitys, however, we are all human beings and all come from the universe and have Reiki energy within us, so we have an enormous amount of similarities and things in common. When a practitioner does distant connection healing, they merge with the recipient and as such could be said to become one with them, and feel this state of oneness when we do this, so at this time, it could be thought that there is no us and them, that we are both as one.

This February I am giving a discount of £10 for my discount connection Reiki, so £40 for one hour, which the recipient can have at any time of day, whatever they are doing, or they can book a certain time so that they can relax sit or lie down and rest while having Reiki. To book send an email if outside of UK or ring/email if in UK and I will send you details of how to pay prior to the appointment. A consultation form will be required to fill in. Quote ‘oneness’ for your discount.



Reiki Benefits

Reiki is very versatile to use. It is good for self healing and there are several methods of self healing which one is taught at first degree on my courses. I teach Usui Reiki Ryoho which is as close to the way that Usui did it himself as we can be. To follow the way he originally practised Reiki. Self healing is important to Reiki and then we can also use Reiki for other people to help others, after level one, this can be for family and friends. After level two, it can be for the public as well. Level three is where we learn how to attune and give empowerments and learn Kotodama and many more symbols.

Reiki is good for health problems and for anxiety, stress, sleeping problems, spiritual development and for many other things. It is safe to use alongside convention medical treatments. Many hospitals around the world are now bringing Reiki practitioners into the wards to help patients. Reiki is a natural method for relaxation, health and spiritual development. I am a big believer of things being natural and of natural methods of healing and health maintenance. It is much easier to maintain your health when you use natural methods which you can do each day and each week and fit these into your life and your schedules easily.

When you have an appointment for Reiki, you can have this sat down in a comfy seat or lying down and all you need to do is relax. You can have Reiki for one hour or more and many people drop asleep when they have this or feel deeply relaxed. You may see colours or feel warmth or cool, or tingling, but many people simply feel deeply relaxed and then afterwards appreciate the benefits that it brings to them. You can have an appointment at the same time as someone else such as a friend and Reiki with work at an individual level for each person for what each person needs.

The energy is able to come to you via distant connection also, to anywhere in the world. Reiki is very relaxing and the more you have it the more it will help you. So do connect with me whereever you are reading this post and you can have Reiki in person or via distant connection if you are not in my area.

When you learn Reiki the more you do it for yourself the more you will benefit and the more you will learn and know that Reiki is working for you, and also you will learn how to feel the energy and utilise it in different ways as your progress through each level of Reiki training and use it yourself. Reiki can be learnt at your own pace, so you are not under any pressure, you have the day or 2 days training day and have a manual to read and cds to listen to or mp3s, so after your intial training you continue with your development at a pace to suit you and can ask me for advice at any time.

Spiritual Counselling

If you would like someone to listen.  Talk in a non-judgemental environment, about worries and life’s difficulties.  I will intuitively ask questions  which  help you to think about your proboems and help you to reassess and find answers and options.  Using positive psychology methods and spiritual counselling techniques.

Spiritual counselling can include: chakra balancing, learning how to access intuition, become more attuned to your soul and listen to your inner voice more, be more in touch with your authentic self and your soul’s path.  Gain options through intuition and reduce stress and anxiety.  You could benefit from  meditation techniques or aromatherapy essential oils, which are blended to suit your emotions and health.  I practice energy healing which can be used for many different problems, mind, body and soul.

Advice and help for any problems which may be connected to your soul fragmenting or you may be feeling adrift or out of sync.  You may feel unable to make decisions and talking to someone about this could help along with many different spiritual counselling methods and ways for spiritual development.

Also I teach Usui Ryoho Reiki if you would like to learn how to relax, self heal, meditate and this also is good for spiritual development.

Spiritual Winter by YiYe Zhang

A Spiritual Winter can be very hard on our resources. Yet, at the same time, it provides us with a rare opportunity to answer the calling that we didn’t even know we had before.

In a time of trauma, what we can learn from Winter is to immerse into the dark. In the darkness, we suspend our everyday mentality, we incubate. Our Soul resets and reclaims our intrinsic rhythms, like going back to the womb. 

The divine light, that we consciously understand, pours out from heaven – the above.

💙 But here, in Spiritual Winter, it is a different type of light from what we used to know. It rises from the below. Fire within Water. Like a blue flame emerges from the darkness, spontaneously and potently.

Pranic Healing

Pranic means life force and the aim is to bring balance to the energy flow within the body.  When giving a treatment the Prantic healer first scans the body without touching, by sweeping their hands over it, about a foot or two away from it, to see if they can sense energy blockages or imbalances.  When they find an area that they want to work on, they work on that area and remove the negative energy.  When that is gone they send fresh life force energy to the body to bring health and positive energy to it.  They draw this energy from the sun, air, earth, trees, and other things in nature.  When this restortation happens in the body, it releases any negative emotional charge along with any dark energies that can cause disease.  

The benefits of pranic healing are: it reduces stress, anxiety and depression, it boosts self confidence, it helps to decrease panic attacks,  phobias and social anxiety.  It helps remove negative blockages and brings the body into balance.  It is healing for physical problems.  It makes you happier and more content.  It assists sleep.  It improves your immune system.  It helps people be more energetic.  It is good for spiritual development.  

Energy healing

Energy healing for healing of the body, physical health problems, to help remove toxins from the body and for pain relief.  To boost immunity.  I would use energy healing if someone has had an accident or operation to help the body to recover and heal quickly.  Energy healing can be good for any health conditions and medical problems and can be used along side medical treatments also.  It can assist the problems of all the organs in the body.  Someone does not need to know what health problem they have, if they feel run down and do not know the cause of the problem, I would use energy healing which will go to the source of the condition.  I would use energy healing for spiritual development and if someone wants to become more spiritual.  It is good for mental health as well, for relaxation, to reduce stress, anxiety, worries, depression, emotional problems.  To help recover from anger and hurt or grief and to help people to forgive and move on.  I would use energy healing to boost self confidence and for phobias.  If someone has sleep problems or has difficulty getting to sleep.  To improve cognitive abilities such as attention and decision making.  To help someone reach their goals.  To help someone release negative emotions and negative thinking.  To help someone who is unhappy and struggling with their life.  To help someone overcome emotional problems caused by the past, to release negative energy built up from past unhappiness and past difficulties.  To increase someone’s strength to cope.  Energy healing can also help to bring balance to people’s lives so if someone says their life is out of sync or they are unhappy and they want to make changes in their life, then I would use energy healing for them.
